Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1)
Enhanced 9-1-1 (E9-1-1) is an enhanced version of the 9-1-1 system used in the United States for calls to emergency assistance such as police, fire, and ambulance services. Calls to 9-1-1 are routed to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) – E9-1-1 identifies the location of the caller and routes the call to the appropriate local PSAP, and provides the PSAP with location information in order to speed response. Landline and cell service providers both are required by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to support E9-1-1 where it is available.
